Sampled the tapas menu and pizza ahead of our forthcoming wedding. The food was very tasty and the calamari was surprising as I never tried it before and I was pleasantly surprised with how nice it was

Went for Valentines eve dinner with my Boyfriends. It was a lovely experiences starting with not being busy for that evening. We dined in a very quaint conservatory with a beautiful fire place. The waitress was welcoming and helped us deciding on the food whilst giving us complementary drinks at the end. The sizes of food for the prices you... More

We had a great tapas meal as a family of 11 people (from 2 years plus) across three generations, to celebrate a fortieth birthday, and received excellent service from planning beforehand to the meal itself. The food was fresh, tasty, very nicely displayed and there was plenty for everyone, and an opportunity to take some home. We had the conservatory... More

Dined here with a group for Christmas, we chose the cheaper tapas menu and there was a couple of us with dietary requirements so wasn't sure how we would get on. No worry though, the food was excellent, unbelievable value and service was terrific. Those with needs had them catered for extremely well including myself. I will be back here... More

Very nearly turned around and went into town, this venue is slightly off the beaten track in terms of getting there by car but WOW. The service was outstanding, an older lady (Wish I had got her name, a credit to you!!) couldn't do enough for you. We were in the intimate conservatory which only housed 6 or 7 tables.... More

We opted for this place because of the Natwest tastecard discount, even though we had the wrong day we decided to stay anyway and try it out....service was amazing, food lush, loads of choice, good atmosphere and value for money. Looking forward to going again, discount or not!

The drinks flowed and the food was brilliant, there was a selection of breads and dips, Calamari strips, tomato potatoes, breaded mushrooms, chicken and lamb skewers, chips, breaded mozzarella, gamba! It was all so very delicious and we... More
